Eighty seven railway stations have opened or been added to the railway network since 1st January 2000 across the UK National Railway network. All of these railway stations are listed in chronological order below with the date that they opened.
2,573 railway stations are open^+ on the UK national rail network. If you are looking for proposed railway stations that have not yet opened, the proposed opening dates page can be found here. This list is based on the Office of Rail and Road estimates of station usage list.
This table does not include the railway stations that have been opened in Northern Ireland, light rail/rapid transit systems or heritage railway lines although this website provides updates on railway stations in these categories.
Counting open railway stations is a challenge as the status of some stations are unclear.
^ Three railway stations (Redcar British Steel, IBM Halt and Manchester United Football Ground) are currently not served by railway services for the foreseeable future. The Office of Rail and Road removed IBM Halt from their 19/20 stats, returned usage stats for Redcar British Steel because services ran until the December 2019 timetable change and provided no usage stats for Manchester United Football Ground. They are included in the number of opened stations counted by this website.
Corfe Castle was included in the list of railway stations in the ORR 19/20 stats but no passenger usage stats were returned.
Norton Fitzwarren railway station was served by a GWR operated shuttle on 3 August 2019. It is not counted in the number of opened stations.
Angel Road was formally closed before Meridian Water opened and is effectively treated as its replacement. The number of opened railway stations was not changed when Meridian Water opened.
+ Okehampton and Sampford Courtenay railway stations on the privately owned Dartmoor railway station are unlikely to be served in 2020/21 as part of the Okehampton summer Sunday services because the company that leases the line has fallen into administration. It is understood that the issues have been rectified and work to support further services to these railway station is currently underway.
